A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage was commissioned to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment on land off Low Road, Halton, Lancashire in support of a housing application. The assessment identified that the site has a low potential for archaeological remains from all periods. 

Lancashire Archaeology Advisory Service requested an additional geophysical survey to be undertaken on the site. This identified some possible anomalies of archaeological interest. 

An additional targeted trenching evaluation was udnertaken in order evaluate any potential surviving archaeological remains identified by a geophysical survey. There were no archaeological remains other than a lynchet and undated field boundary, though some Medieval and Post-Medieval pottery was recovered.

On submission of the report to the council, no additional archaeological work was needed and the condition was discharged.
